During my 10 years at RUSM, I’ve seen students struggle through all sorts of challenging experiences. But they’re so driven to achieve their dreams that they refuse to let their personal hardships hold them back.

THE POWER OF OPPORTUNITY
This is a wonderful place for personal development. I have been given a chance to develop professionally here, faster and with more support than I’ve ever experienced before. And I have been able to live a different lifestyle than I would have back home.

THE POWER OF OPPORTUNITY
I love the variety of my teaching work at RUSM, whether it’s using sophisticated simulation technology, developing lectures that instruct and inspire or teaching students the critical ‘art’ of interviewing patients.

WE ALL SHARE ONE MISSION:
Helping our students realize their dreams
It starts at the top with Dean Joseph A. Flaherty’s “One School, One Mission” initiative.
Like all good doctors, RUSM’s deans and administrators are focused on high-quality outcomes. That means admitting the most promising students, hiring the best faculty, supporting those who need help and encouraging everyone, students and faculty alike, to realize their full potential. It Starts at the Top >>
Our students’ commitment to their education is inspiring.
Some are the first in their families to go to college; others have overcome various obstacles, come from diverse backgrounds, and/or are changing careers. None have allowed personal setbacks or obstacles to stop them from going to medical school. And once they’ve been accepted by RUSM, they are determined to make the most of the opportunity.

Faculty members bring rich backgrounds in research, medical education and clinical practice to their teaching.
RUSM puts a significant focus on teaching and learning.
We support faculty by providing high-tech medical-education technology and evidence-based training in teaching. We support our students by offering highly trained advisory staff, a unique Center for Teaching and Learning and a rigorous, comprehensive curriculum. In Support of Teaching >>
We invest in our colleagues.
The best teachers are always learning, both to enrich their understanding of particular fields and to advance their careers. As part of the DeVry Education Group, RUSM is able to offer our faculty and administrators a range of development programs tailored to their interests (and those of their families).
